Briefly: we lost Brian Williams (does anybody believe he'll return to the anchor chair after his six-month suspension?), Jon Stewart (he's only retiring, and he's not even doing that for a while, but if you didn't know better you'd certainly think people had trotted out their undoubtedly pending obits; as Stewart himself bemusedly put it, "Did I die?"), David Carr (a shocking death at a shockingly young 58), and Bob Simon (whose vitality belied his 73 years and whose death in a car accident in NYC was a sick cosmic joke for a veteran war correspondent).
One hell of a crummy week. Couldn't we hear something uplifting, like Rupert Murdoch was going broke?
